Stunning home & garden, views, + INTERNET!

A beautiful country home, three miles from Ballinrobe, in the heart of the western lake district, and within easy reach of Loughs Mask and Carra, as well as Croagh Patrick, Westport, Castlebar, Knock, Galway and Connemara.

Relaxed and comfortable, the house is large, open plan lay-out downstairs; clean and modern though in traditional style. It is wheelchair accessible. Ideal for friends, families and children, the large utility room is designed for outdoor pursuits. The area is a magnet for fishermen, golfers and hikers, and it's a great place for heritage holidays. Pets welcome for a small additional charge: there is also an outside dog run, stables and a kennel.

The house has four large bedrooms, and sleeps a maximum of ten. Three have double beds with an extra single bed in two. The fourth bedroom has three single beds. There is also a large wooden cot, a travel cot, plus other equipment for small people.

The house is surrounded by fields, lawns, flower and vegetable gardens. All are enclosed by hedges and a gate. Beyond the fields there are lovely views across the Westport hills, over which the sun sets in the evening. There's a welcoming open fire, with fresh eggs and scones on arrival.

The market town of Ballinrobe is situated between world class trout lakes, an 18 hole golf course and the world's most beautiful race course: all within ten minute's drive.

Shops, pub, restaurants, lake beaches: 3 miles.

The property is 5 miles from Ballintubber Abbey; 10 miles from Ashford Castle, Cong, Lough Corrib and extensive forests.

About Tanya Sillem

I am a TV journalist working in Dublin, so I ask for enquiries to be made by email in the first instance. My neighbour Mary looks after the house, and makes sure that guests have everything they need, including complimentary fresh eggs and turf for a fire on arrival.

Tanya Sillem purchased this house in 2005

Why Tanya Sillem chose County Mayo

Roxboro Lodge is a great base to explore the west of Ireland from Galway to Sligo. It's perfect for lovers of the outdoors from walkers to fishermen. It's also perfect for indoor pursuits including researching family history. It's within a few miles of the great western lakes, yet a stone's throw from the Atlantic and mountains of Connemara. It has a large utility room, perfect for drying fishing and hiking gear, wellies and pets.

It is also a beautiful home, with and a great place to unwind; wheelchair friendly and safe for children and pets with an enclosed garden. This is a modern property designed in tradition style within the last ten years. It has antique tiles; an open fire; and country living revolves around the rayburn-aga in the open plan kitchen/lounge area.Large mature gardens, surrounded by fields, and hills.

What makes this house unique

Parts of the house are ship-like, from the sloping shelter the upstairs ceilings and velux views of the sky down the landing. The wooden tongue and groove ceiling in the main room downstairs and its fishermens' lanterns glow before the open fire. Big picture windows offer the best sunsets across the western hills, stone walls and fields. The garden has vegetables, fruit and flowers and lots of room for football.

What a wonderful house for our stay in Ireland!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 7 adults and 1 child was blessed to spend a week in this lovely house during our trip to Ireland this summer. The house was exactly as described and pictured in the listing and has plenty of room for a large family to enjoy and spread out. The location is beautiful and the sheep make the most wonderful neighbors! We enjoyed exploring Ballinrobe and the surrounding area, make sure to take time to go down to Cong and up to the Irish Raptor Research Centre near Sligo (this was a huge hit with our whole family). The locals are so helpful and friendly, we especially enjoyed stopping in at Hilda's Café Loire every day for her wonderful pastries! The town library is also a pleasant surprise! The owner of the house is wonderful to work with and was very helpful in answering all of my questions. Of special note is the wonderful housekeeper, she was onsite to greet us and show us around, kept us supplied with fresh eggs and brown bread and was a great source of local information. We would all highly recommend this house if you are interested in staying on the west side of Ireland. It is a lovely, relaxing spot in the country away from all the hustle and bustle, but still is only about an hour from Galway and lots of other activities. We would definitely stay there again! Thanks for helping to make our vacation such a memorable one!

We stayed in Roxboro for 2 weeks in summer.

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous holiday with family there and have some lovely memories. The house is very spacious and comfortable, its an ideal base to explore mayo and surrounding areas. The gardens are beautiful to sit in and relax and were in full bloom when we were there. Its an ideal place for children and dogs who love exploring. Clare island, Cong and Westport are all within short driving distance from the house and all well worth a visit (especially clare island)! We Would definitely recommend roxboro as a place to get away from it all or have a family gathering. The little things such as fresh eggs and milk on arrival and loads of lego for the kids made a big difference. Great house for children adults and pets!
